Wow, simply startling for these literary stars to still be shining among us, a virtual logbook of the early colonial days in British governed - soon to be - America. This set was presented by the Winchester City School Board to Garland R. Quarles at his retirement recognition service May 25th, 1965. Dr. Quarles was superintendent of the Winchester Public School System. This set was given in recognition for his years of devotion and loyalty. A very distinctive set of books - quite the elegant and informative example of Captured Tyme.
